    About France Tenaille
    France Tenaille is a partner based in Gowling WLG's Toronto office. She is a member of the firm’s business law, energy, infrastructure and mining groups, and is co-leader of the firm’s Latin America team.

    France's practice focuses primarily on corporate and M&A transactions, corporate finance, commercial matters, and project finance, with an emphasis on cross-border deals and clients in the Latin American natural resources sector.

    Before immigrating to Canada, France practised law for over five years at a major law firm in Caracas, Venezuela. Given this experience, she holds a deep understanding of the legal system, culture and business practices of Latin America. France's civil law background and fluency in Spanish — along with her common law training and Canadian legal expertise — allow her to advise Canadian and international clients on a full range of Latin American matters, as well as advise Latin American clients on their business in Canada and beyond.

    France has extensive experience advising public and private issuers in connection with asset and share purchases and related party transactions, corporate reorganizations, public and private securities offerings, stock exchange listings, and commercial arrangements such as mining (earn-in) options, joint ventures, operating and off-take agreements, royalties and streaming arrangements, and strategic alliance agreements. She also advises on corporate social responsibility and foreign anti-corruption legislation.

The 297-page compilation which is entitled “Portfolio of Opportunities for Foreign Investment” for 2016-2017 offers an impressive number of business opportunities, which is insofar the highest since 2014. The step, which is viewed as one of the country's strategies to boost its slow-paced foreign investment, caters varied business ventures and opportunities including but not limited to healthcare, tourism, transportation, mining and agriculture.

Speakers, among other things, will delve into the current conditions of Cuba's trade policies and strategies, including the opportunities and pitfalls of its plans, the implications of its legal framework and other important matters.
